Pomerantz Law Firm Investigates Claims On Behalf Of Investors Of Kenneth Cole Productions

Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Kenneth Cole Productions (“Kenneth Cole” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KCP) (ISIN: US1932941057) concerning the proposed acquisition of Kenneth Cole by its Founder and Chairman, Kenneth Cole, (“Chairman Cole”) in a cash transaction valued at approximately $280 million.

The investigation concerns whether the Kenneth Cole directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Kenneth Cole shareholders would receive $15.00 in cash per share of Kenneth Cole common stock. However, the Company’s stock has traded as high as $16.00 per share today and at least one analyst has set a target price of $17.00 per share. Additionally, Chairman Cole owns 47% of the stock representing 89% of the voting power.

Kenneth Cole shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Rebecca Jarmon at rjarmon@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 314.
